Day 1 (L*, D)
It’s an early rise if you are joining the tour in Alice Springs where you will make the journey to Ayers Rock to meet your fellow travelers who are joining there. *Lunch is included for those departing from Alice Springs only). This afternoon embark on an interpretive walk at the base of Uluru (Note: Uluru is a sacred site and the Anangu people ask visitors to respect their law and do not climb). The Cultural Centre is impressive and well worth a visit before watching the ever changing colors of Uluru at sunset. After dinner, some stories and stargazing, it’s time for a good night’s rest at our private campsite before another active day tomorrow.
(OPTIONAL EXTRA: Field of Light)
Day 2 (B,L,D)
Your guide will wake you bright and early to experience a mesmerizing Uluru sunrise, early mornings being such a magical time in the desert. Then it’s a short drive to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), an aboriginal word for “many heads”, to explore its domes of which there are 36 in total. Pull on your hiking boots and take the Valley of the Winds walk through creek beds, domes and beautiful wilderness. After lunch, it’s farewell to Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park as you travel to Kings Creek Station to spend the night at your private camp.
Day 3 (B,L,D)
This morning enter the Watarrka (Kings Canyon) National Park, home of a mighty chasm with sheer red rock faces which soar over 100-metres above lush palm forests. The rim of Kings Canyon is a 6-kilometers round trip walk and you will visit the Amphitheatre, Lost City and tranquil Garden of Eden. After lunch, make your way towards the iconic outback town of Alice Springs, arriving in the early evening. This town has a vast pioneering history and will feel like the big smoke after 2 and a half days in the ‘Bush’.
You won’t need your swag tonight, as your hostel accommodation is included (dormitory or UPGRADE to twin or double room) along with dinner at the hostel. Later, you’ll have the chance to wash your dusty clothes before experiencing the nightlife of this charming outback town (at your own expense).
Day 4 (B)
Today you have an early start. Following breakfast (provided at the hostel) leave Alice Springs and begin the journey to Ayers Rock. With a short stop along the way you will be dropped at the Ayers Rock Airport or resort before saying farewell to this magical destination.
